    Sportive career
    I tried out diverse sports in my younger days, ranging from ski racing to show jumping and tennis tournaments. I was looking for an occupation, which would give me the opportunity to really reach my physical limits. Then, after I had won my first bike race (on a borrowed bike), I knew that I had found it. My body was full of adrenaline, every muscle hurt and I was absolutely happy at the same time. Everything went quite fast afterwards. Within three years, I was able to move on from the state cycling team to the youth national team. I became Germany’s runner-up champion and one of Europe’s top three marathon riders in the U23 age group. Nowadays, as a pro, my enthusiasm is at least as strong as it was when I was 15 years old and started cycling. I still love to max out my physical limits and to reach the targets I have set myself. In the future, these targets will be sportive, as well as organisational ones: building up the ULTRASPORTS ROSE RACINGTEAM for me means building up a pro team, which lives qualities like team spirit, mutual motivation and a sense of togetherness like no other team and which will realise fair, sportive success for all participants.

    Now a few more casual questions and answers to liven up this portrait a little bit:

    Favourite dish:
    pizza (with hot salami, anchovies, olives and fresh tomatoes)

    Favourite drink:

    everything made of coffee beans

    Favourite track:
    the faster the better, like the one at the Madrid World Cup

    Favourite training region:
    Mallorca, which has everything I need for my training: mountains, flat roads, cafés and sun - and Simon as a training partner of course

    Favourite training:
    races are the best training

    Toughest training:
    everything in bad weather, I can’t bear that, you could almost call me a fair weather biker

    Sportive preferences:
    workhorse – I am always well and strategically prepared and I never give up

    Sportive weaknesses:
    I guess I wasn’t born with a sportive talent

    What annoys me:
    full jersey pockets, an absolute no go

    About me:
    optimistic, even in desperate situations

    Absolutely not acceptable:

    I recharge my batteries when:
    having a good dinner with my girlfriend
